And you are in the hills there in Sheridan...not to mention the altitude you are at and have to cross going West.

One way to increase your power is to install what I call the "Big 3", a cold air intake, freer flowing exhaust and a programmer.

The internal combustion engine is just a big air pump. More air in + more air out = more power. Increasing airflow will make a performance and efficiency difference.

However, increasing airflow is not the end. Your truck's computer will learn and adjust a bit to the new parameter but it is limited. The programmer will set new parameters that will make full use of the change in the air flow.

After I installed my intake, exhaust and programmer; I saw a 4+ MPG improvement on the highway. The HP and torque (which moves the load) increased as well.

To see some real world dyno results of before and after the programmer install, see my Ram Mods link below and go to page 2.

Good luck!
